3:02am
it used to be you tip someone for extraordinary service. >> alisyn: right. >> dave: now you just tip someone please. >> alisyn: so they don't egg your house, that's why you're tipping. >> and go to ff weekend and fire it up and let us know what and talk about it the bottom of the hour. >> alisyn: right to the headlines, new overnight, between the u.n. and afghanistan air base under attack. and car bombs went off at the gates of the american helicopters firing at the attackers and the taliban has claimed responsibility for this and n.a.t.o. says an afghan security officer was killed and local officers say five civilians were killed. did not make it past the gates. the tragic story this morning, a nfl player shoots and kills his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself. jovan belcher shot and killed his 22-year-old girlfriend in their home and belcher's mother and three month old daughter in another room and
3:03am
he then drove to the chiefs practice facility and met up with the head coach and general manager there before turning away and taking his own life in front of them. >> if you can take your worst nightmare and then put somebody that you know and love into that situation a give them a gun and stand three feet away from them and watch them kill themselves, that's what it's like. it's unfathomable. >> police did not release a motive, but he and his girlfriend had been arguing frequently. he was just 25 years old. >> could a broken signal cause this train to derail. it stopped for a ligred light ad got the approved to go. and investigators are looking into the signal issues may have led to the crash.
3:04am
well, first they ran out of gas while trying to steal gas and two would-be thieves led key efforts. >> i think on the world's dumbest criminals, first you run out of fuel and then leave your truck behind. >> they were trying to steal gas from a golf course, and they tried to leave and ran away and left their truck. and clearly they needed gas. and no arrests have been made. >> like an episode of breaking bad. and why do the criminals go to the gas station where they rob someone and they have surveillance cameras and fill up and buy a bag of cheetos. it keeps you up at night.
3:05am
>>. >> rick: it's warm, 56 right now in chicago, your normal high for this date is 40. so, incredible warm air here across the plains. a bit of a front moving through including a few storms, but not going to cool anything down. in fact, look at your temps. 58 degrees in rapid city and seeing temps around 20 to 25 above average and areas of south dakota, 35 degrees above your average, very warm temps there and we still have our problems across parts of the west and the next storm moving into northern california and this one is a very strong one. very significant rain will fall here, some areas eight inches of rain and a lot of the rivers in central california concerned about flooding for today and tonight. and this storm storms by tomorrow, and another one comes in on tuesday, wednesday, lingers a little into thursday and then dry things out and this is the most potent of all and mostly
3:06am
rain, another warm system, but a steady stream of tropical moisture and it will bring light showers throughout parts of the ohio valley, to the great lakes, tonight and this afternoon. and behind it, temps are going to warm up a lot. in fact, today, the temps are extremely warm, across most of the country and pretty much the entire country is above where your average temps are this time of year and tomorrow, we'll see this heat builds further, getting to 61, dleefld, and # 66. and usually we're counting the days to christmas and shopping days left. not this year, the countdown to the fiscal cliff, thanks to our leftist leaders. >> usually count down to christmas, but lately congress does that. get out the advent calendar, and days until we fall off the
3:07am
fiscal cliff. and yesterday, one stayed he was frustrated for republicans and democrats for not taking leadership and the president says it's all the republicans fault, listen. >> the president said he wants the so-called balanced approach to solve this crisis, but what he proposed this week was a classic bait and switch on the american people. a tax increase double the size of what he campaigned on. billions of dollars and unlimited unchecked authority to borrow from the chinese. maybe i missed this, but i don't recall him asking for any of that during the presidential campaign. >> congress does nothing, every family will see their income taxes automatically go up the beginning of next year, a typical middle class family of four will see income taxes rise by 2200. and it's unacceptable for some in congress to hold the middle
3:08am
class hostage simply because they refuse to let the taxes go up. >> alisyn: it sounds like a broken record. and it it's hard to imagine they've been negotiating when they're in the same position. >> dave: the president is on the road, kind of hard to sit down with him. >> alisyn: the president has been on the road as though he were campaigning still and did propose 1.6 trillion dollars in tax increases. >> dave: double what we heard of. >> alisyn: the next ten years and only to the republicans, 400 billion in spending cuts so they were hoping those two numbers would be much closer and furthermore, the president-- not specific enough and also, that he would get a permanent, unlimited debt seal increase. when you talk about how at the end of the year we're always up again, you know. >> like last year. >> alisyn: we wouldn't have that anymore you could always increase the debt ceiling if this agreement were-- >> everyone in congress could enjoy their holiday instead of
3:09am
having to go to the floor of holiday like rob woodall did to describe the debt plan. >> this is a giant blank sheet of paper. it's absent of any information whatsoever. because so, too, is the president proposing for tackling the real economic challenge we have here, the real driver of budget deficits, the real threat to american economics, superiority in this world, out of control-- the president of the united states, the president for four yea years, no credible plan for tackling that spending. >> dave: there's been nothing put on paper when it comes to entitlements from the president one thing he's been afraid to do.
3:10am
now he's been reelected don't be afraid to face the voters. tack tackle entitlement and changes to survive. >> alisyn: isn't that the beauty of the second term. incumbency you're no longer bo ho holden to anyone. >> and that 1.6 trillion dollar. before 800 billion and now it's 1.6 trillion. maybe that's the second term speaking. >> alisyn: let's talk about what's going on with the christmas tree. as you know, it's christmas season and that means that there will be incidents where the p.c. police are out in force, checking and calling your tree, a holiday tree or a christmas tree and this has. this is brewing in massachusetts because the mayor of a small town, well, a city in massachusetts, a small river had invited rhode islanders to cross over the border to come to his christmas free lighting because he's proudly calling
3:11am
it a christmas tree and the governor in rhode island is just calling it a holiday tree. >> and the governor of rhode island is going to call at that holiday free, it's not a christmas tree. and there's the governor from rhode island. >> suspiciously looking. >> and pointed out by the viewers. >> the mayor from the small town in massachusetts had been-- >> we just felt that rhode islanders were gypped and didn't go a chance to go to the state house and light the tree astra digs and felt they were showing change and across the border 15 minutes from you and have a good time tonight. >> dave: their christmas tree lighting and apparently a few rhode islanders there, does it bother you some call it a holiday tree versus a christmas tree? let us know. and coming up we have doreen, a state rep, a plan of her own
3:12am
that holds her own christmas tree lighting in the capital there at rhode island. >> okay, we'll look at more of that. >> coming up on the show, what would our national security team really look like with this guy in charge? >> you make the most of it, study hard and make your homework and make an effort to the smart and you can do fell. if you don't, you get stuck in iraq. >> and the latest on the president's controversial choices. >> alisyn: and then mayhem in the middle east, and this time kim kardashian, and find out why they had to pull out the riot gear in bahrain. ♪

3:16am
>> welcome back. a cabinet shake-up. new reports that president obama is closer to naming new members among the decisions, is who will replace secretary of state hillary clinton. will it be u.n. ambassador susan rice or john kerry? >> well, for defense secretary who will it be? senator john kerry possible for that. and of course the vietnam vet later turned against the war and raises a huge red flag in the near future and the veterans for america join us now, hi, pete. >> thanks for having he me. >> read the pre-interview with you. and you're not a fan of either of these choices. what worries you? >> well, a great deal does, and a lot of it comes to judgment and you played the clip about john kerry and iraq and i still found myself in iraq, imagine that? and he's, both of them have
3:17am
records, set aside benghazi, set aside some of the recent events with susan rice and judgments on management of conflicts called into question and she was in the national security council back in 1993 when rwanda kicked off and she made a controversial comment about, well, if we call it a genocide and don't act. what will be the implications on the november mid term election? and if you hook at-- and then later on, reflexively supported the regime in ruwan da when there were more war crimes committed and since vowed to heal that, but, you know, you've seen her political statements recently that showed there's a political side of susan rice and willingness for talking points that we can't afford as secretary of state and john kerry, he was part of the foreign senate relations committee and he was back in the late 60's and talked about war crimes that he reportedly
3:18am
saw against the vietnam war and you have some track records that don't make them the best fit. >> there are numerous republicans, john mccain, lindsey graham, a barraso who sates i would support john kerry as secretary of state who in their words would cruise through a nomination. and how would an affect if those two are in place? >> if you like what's in the last four years, you're going to get more of the same. deep defense cuts. if you had john kerry as secretary of defense. what we need is a strong secretary of defense, in spite of drawdowns and budget cuts is going to project strength. john kerry is not going to do that. he was against the gulf war, he was for the iraq war before he was against it, and he wanted to withdraw from afghanistan sooner than 2013.
3:19am
along those lines he's got a track record that sort of diminishes defense capability as opposed to building it up. we can't afford that. >> who would you like to see on this? >> i'm not in a position to make that kind of nomination. drastically different perspective than these two, and another piece on these they're differential to international institutions, u.n., criminal courts, that i think that diminishes american democracy and i have the clear eye of the world in the we pave and susan rice, intervention, but not in the threats of the world that are most threating to the united states. >> alisyn: you're of course with veterans of america. >> thanks for having me. >> dave: tax rates are lower now than under president reagan. our next guest says missing

>> welcome back, everybody, some quick headlines now, chris toomey, the wife of pennsylvania senator pat toomey, for the flight 9-3 memorial in shankville and plans to hold an event to raise awareness for the cause. and former president h.w. bush remaining in the hospital through the weekend. the 88-year-old is treated from a nagging cough from
3:24am
bronchitis and his condition is stable, the second time he's been in the hospital this month. >> thanks, an analysis done by the new york times says that because tax rates are lower now than under president reagan, the u.s. can afford to raise taxes and our next guest says not so fast. are they missing the overall point? joining us is james freeman with the editorial board. nice to see you. >> good to be here. >> do you take the new york times at its word here on the research about the tax burden, during the reagan years, we have some graphics to show us some different family incomes here on the upper echelon. homes making $350,000 a year and now they're paying about 42% of income compared with 49% back in 1980? so they're saving money and that goes on all of the tax brackets, middle class and lower class, do you agree with that or do you think the new york times is missing the overall point here. >> as far as the numbers analysis, there's a lot of
3:25am
examination of that over the next few days, for the moment let's accept that everything they've said is true. the real point is the context here because what ronald reagan did was start a worldwide movement toward lower tax rates and growth followed. a lot of people were lifted out of poverty and the good news is, the world is just a much more competitive place now, the question isn't are the tax rates at the same level they were in 1980 or 1950, the question is given the world today and the other economies do we have a competitive tax system and i think our slow going economy under president obama says we don't. >> the new york times though makes a mention of, just a sort of a passing mention in this massive article, by the way, about the need to cut spending like one or two sentences about the need-- >> and i think that milton freedman brought us, that spending is really the tax bill. it's just delayed. so, every toll the government spends eventually they're going to have to take it from someone, either in taxes or in inflation, so, this is why
3:26am
you're seeing a lack of business investment is because this massive spending and huge debt tells every business owner, every investor, big tax are are coming to eventually pay for this. >> what was the point of the piece? i know there's hand wringing out there, maybe the folks on the right say under obama our taxes have gone up and we may more in taxes than we've ever paid and attempt to say, we're not-- >> this is long-term by the president and his allies to create an intellectual justification to raise taxes and in this case, they use the reagan years and often went back to times after world 2, where we were the only big kind of big, healthy industrial economy to say look, we grew then. and again, the point is that we're in a slow growth economy, high unemployment economy, a more competitive world thanks in part to our policies of the past, we need to compete and the highest
3:27am
corporate tax rate in the world, what america has is not the way to be competitive. >> to make the argument we've made is to raise taxes and revenues and approach the fiscal cliff and argument from small businesses and others, if you increase our rate, we're either going to have to layoff individuals, not going to hire anybody else right now, and so, therefore, this economy that's already stalled is not going to grow at a clip. >> you remember two years ago, the question was, should we keep the bush rates, at least temporarily, given the problems in the economy and at that time, all the democrats acknowledged raising taxes is not a way to boost economic growth. for whatever reason, this time, there seems to be more of an ideological commitment that the rates have a rise and i think the president ought to be thinking, how do we grow. >> that's what the president said in 2010, we can't afford taxes right now in this down economy, what's changed. >> two years, i guess the election change. great to see you this morning, appreciate it. >> coming up on the show, it's the phone call that every

3:36am
of the collectors according to the washington post, there are already around 500 case officers at the defense intelligence agency. gathers tension for the military by 2018. they'll have about a thousand and that number will keep growing as the defense intelligence agency transitions over to the new dcs spies will be trained by the cia, but unlike the cia, the dcs is not going to be able to do anything, but gath gather intelligence, political sabotage and drone strikes continue to be cia operations and of dcs, focus on i.d.ing targets. and in recent months, those priorities have been keeping tabs on problem areas like africa, iran, north korea and even the strengthening

4:06am
but not celebrating the 30-day countdown left until we look for a financial cliff that's coming fast and furious. >> dave: and look, if you get out the actual calendar and look at it and cut out weekends and realize that congress goes home for christmas on the 14th, basically two weeks. >> clayton: yeah. >> dave: two weeks or congress to come together and reach a deal on avoiding that fiscal cliff and we are nowhere even close to any compromise after the president's proposal, ali. >> alisyn: yeah, it's not looking promising. because the president, i mean, the republicans say at that they were hoping that the president was going to try to meet them more in the middle or halfway because they all had agreed that they could raise 800 billion dollars with each of their separate tax proposals, one was to close loopholes on the republican side. and the president to raise on individuals and now the number has changed. the president in his proposal wants 1.6 trillion dollars in tax increases. here is the president on how
4:07am
the g.o.p. has not been cooperating. >> if congress does nothing, every family will see their income taxes automatically go up, a typical middle class family will see their taxes rise by 2200 dollars, but it's unacceptable for some in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage because they refuse to let the tax rates go up on the wealthiest americans. >> a lot of people saying that there's not been a compromise at all coming from the white house, in fact, that we had this sort of road maps before we had a plan and suddenly the white house is pulling the rug out from it. and colonel alan west speaking to huckabee about the issue. >> i was in complete shock because it really has nothing to do with reality. and when you look at the proposal proposal to raise 1.6 trillion in new taxes and he wants more in stimulus spending and extend the 99 weeks of unemployment benefits which will be another 30 billion per year, and also, the other thing that was very
4:08am
troubling, was that the president wants his own control of raising the debt ceiling. so, i don't think we have a president that is serious about giving our debt under control and getting our deficit, which is the federal government spending under control. we continue to get closer to this incredible fiscal cliff and i think that the president should take a case study analysis and look at what president coolidge did and jfk, john f. kennedy when they went in and lowered tax rates and increased revenues, which is exactly what we're talking about. >> so either you've got a president who is tremendously overconfident after being reelected or someone who asks for the sty in the first offer knowing that he will look like the compromising once he gives in on the demands and gets himself involved in negotiations. >> both sides are waiting to see who is going to offer up the plan first, we're waiting on the white house. >> it's the president's job, isn't it? congress controls the purse strings and the white house is waiting for-- we're waiting for something
4:09am
from congress on their side and go back and forth, who puts up the offer first and it's the first salvo, so, michigan mcconnell laughs at it and timothy geithner hands it to them. this isn't real. >> i didn't know that first was the first offer. we have been talk about this for months. why is it now, i'm sure after the election and everybody knew where both sides stood and you would think some sort of progress. >> thanksgiving congress was off and to today's point the christmas holiday coming up here, only a few weeks, the 30 day window is not a 30 day window. >> and all of the congressmen we speak to off camera, we say is there going to be a deal, probably in the last minute we'll hash something out a ridiculous charade. get it done. >> let us know. >> and this story keeps resonating. the beautiful story that the new york post captured this week after police officer who didn't know that his photo was being shot and he was giving a homeless man socks and shoes
4:10am
that he had bought out of his own pocket. the development. >> the n.y.p.d. officer on the screen, larry deprimmo, now the brother, a random act of kindness it wasn't something planned or thought out and we spoke to larry on friday, and this is a little recap of his appearance, first listen to him. >> what brought my attention to it, some were making fun of them. saying you've got no shoes, and i was down the street and didn't have a pair of socks on, i don't care about the price we need to get him a good pair of boots and another human being and want to help this gentleman a lot of things that a lot of people don't realize things like this happen every day. >> now the new development this morning, his-- the homeless man's brother was picking up the new york post and saw his photo on the post and didn't realize this was miss brother who is homeless sitting there without shoes. and had to learn about it from picking up from the new york
4:11am
post. >> alisyn: this is 54-year-old jiffry hillman, homeless man, it's interesting to hear people's back story how they get in dire straits. one of three brothers all good students and hard workers, but he just became wayward. he start of bounced around and they grew up in new jersey, he bounced around and never had any directions and the brothers didn't know that he had gotten in such trouble to the point where he couldn't afford shoes and was homeless and didn't have socks and freezing out on the streets and would he just call home about once a year and check in, that he was okay, but they didn't know it was this bad. >> the brother says his door is open to his homeless brother and hopefully a happy ending to him finding work and a path to getting off the streets. >> alisyn: and he sounds like a sweet guy. when the officer was here, he told us the story how the homeless man, he said can i get you anything else, can you come with me to a sherlt. no, officer you've done

as we head closer to the edge of the fiscal cliff. and house republicans had harsh words for president obama after he released a budget proposal suggesting more taxes, more spending. >> he wants the power to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval and they cannot issue an edict like a monarchy, congress, congress, congress is in charge of the purse. the government has gone wild. >> dave: in that congressman's words has they become a monarchy, explaining from texas, congressman poe. >> good morning, dave. >> dave: how has this administration become like a monarchy? >> well, the president in his proposal basically said, turn everything over to me, give me the power or let me take the power to raise the debt ceiling, that seems to be quite arrogant on his part and if he's serious about it, they
4:17am
be what he's really saying is, i want to spend more money. that's how i want to solve the fiscal cliff problem, is spending more taxpayer money. so, the president doesn't have the authority to raise the debt ceiling, he shouldn't have the authority. congress, as you all mentioned earlier is in charge of the money, the purse in the united states. >> dave: of course, there wasn't just that ability to continuously raise the debt ceiling, and 1.6 trillion in new taxes, 50 billion in new stimulus spending, to mention a couple of provisions in his offer. is there any, any room for compromise where we are right now in avoiding the fiscal cliff? >> well, there will have to be some compromise, there will have to be some plan, but the president's proposal is so ridiculous. the idea that he's going to raise taxes, really fwe just followed his plan, wouldn't solve the problem anyway, because the spending is so much. and that he wants to spend more money, he wants to--
4:18am
another stimulus bill. the first one didn't work well for the country, but yet, we cannot spend our way into prosperity and tax our way into prosperity, which is what the president thinks. so, i think in the house, republicans should finish their plan, propose their plan, pass their plan out of the house and get something on the table from the republican side and send it to the-- >> then what should that plan include, in terms of added revenues? >> well, we should provide the tax code and make sure some of the loopholes in there are removed. so, streamline the tax code, remove the entire income tax philosophy, fair tax or flat tax, can't do that now. but look at spending and spending cuts across the board and different programs where we can really cut some money, rather than talk about it, let's do something and do it
4:19am
next week and move it down to the senate and the let them look at it it. >> dave: so there's substance and also, style, congressman. how do you feel about the fact that the president, instead of sitting down with your leader john boehner is out there in what appears to be a campaign style, giving speeches instead of negotiating? >> well, it's disturbing in some respect. he is the leader of the country. and rather than be in washington d.c. in a room working with everybody involved that can make these decisions and push legislation, republicans, democrats, senators, members of house and talking through the knitty gritty, he proposes town and campaigns about it and it's difficult to communicate and talk about things if the president is not in washington to talk. >> dave: especially with roughly two weeks to go before congress recesses on the 14th. always good to have you on, thank you, sir. >> thank you, dave. >> dave: coming up next, for those who wish life was like a

5:19am
about 600 billion dollars total in entitlement cuts and spending cuts and also had a demand that congress would give up any say from now on forever in raising the debt limit, which of course has always been a tool of congress, both democrats and republicans have used to oppose the president's policies or to demand if you're going to raise the debt limit increase spending cuts as well. boehner said there's absolutely a nonstarter. they're in a stalemate and nowhere and i guess the question is, with 30 days left is this a negotiating ploy, an enough opening negotiating position from the president or indicate that they're really far apart and we could go over the cliff. >> we could have really just two weeks before they're done. the recess is december 14th, i'm curious though, you mentioned the substance of it. how bothered is john boehner with the style of it. instead of sitting down face-to-face negotiating, the president is out giving speeches, really campaigning?

>> you know, i don't think so. i mean, first of all, both of these guys know when they sat together as they did in the august, 2011 talks it didn't go very well and they're negotiating with the president, negotiating with him through the secretary of the treasury so i don't think that they object to that. i think it's a-- they're serious guys and been through it before. it's a matter of substance not a matter of style. they're waiting to see what is each side willing to put on the table and the boehner side said we made concessions, the republicans. and we'll put more revenue on the table and high earners have to pay more taxes and what is the white house going to do in response. >> alisyn: it sounds like a juicy fox news sunday. >> juicy. >> alisyn: we will be watching it and eating along. >> trying to find a food

is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines.
5:23am
if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. the flu comes on fast, so ask your doctor about tamiflu. prescription for flu.

>> all right. welcome back. well, we've been hearing about the war on women, but what about the war on men. our next guest says this is why marriage is on the decline. >> alisyn: you guys want to hit it on the ax. >> dave: and i guess we feel left out. according to pew research only 51% of adults were married in
5:25am
2011 compared to 72 in 1960. is the so-called war on men to blame? who called it the war on men. >> alisyn: maybe suzanne did, the author of "how to choose a husband and make peace with marriage" hi, suzanne. >> thanks for having me. >> alisyn: you were on "fox & friends" on wednesday and caused a bit of a firestorm. >> clayton: a hornets nest. >> alisyn: with some of your principles. let's clarify. what do you mean that women aren't women anymore? >> right, okay, keep in mind, i was quoting what men said. so, in that article, i said men said women aren't women anymore, that's one thing that's gotten kind of confused. don't kill the messenger. >> alisyn: what does that mean. >> and i piggy backed off of that by suggesting that women surrender to their femininity sn that's what people are confused about. the issue is that women have become sort of overdeveloped, if you will, in their
5:26am
masculine side because they've been groomed for number one, a life in the marketplace as opposed to a life at home and so of course, that whole plan is going to be very different in terms of what you're going to be -- how you're going to prepare for it and what you're going to be doing with your time in your life. >> alisyn: what if women don't want to be at home and they want to have jobs. >> then don't. >> alisyn: they can't get married? >> absolutely not. of course not. i would never say that. of course i would never say such a thing, do whatever you want, but the reality is that most people do want to get married and have families and what i'm trying to say is the road map that women are being led to plan out, map out for their life is not going to work for most women if the ultimate goal is to have the family, men and marriage. >> clayton: in new york city, women waiting until they're 50 to get married or have kids, beyond science or-- >> right, right. >> clayton: is that a problem?
5:27am
and is marriage the traditional idea of marriage suffering because women want to go further and further into the workplace? >> the idea of traditional marriage is suffering for lot of reason. the article, wasn't the whole kit and caboodle, one aspect that i was passing on, if you will. there's certainly more to the issue, the purpose of my book, how to choose a husband. this was sort after teaser. but the whole attitude for marriage in general, for young people in particular is such a negative one and that's really the premise that i'm concerned about because when you start out thinking so negatively and taught things like never depend on a man and postpone marriage as long as possible. not that there's anything wrong with postponing it, but with that attitude you're probably going to have a self-fulfilling prophesy, but turn it around. this is a good thing.

marriage, family-- >> governor huckabee on our show disagreed a little. >> okay. >> dave: he shed some light and i think he cleared some of this up. here is the governor on saturday. >> we've come to the place almost we forget to say there's a difference. as the french say viva la difference. i was raised a southern boy, even if you walked a lady, you walked on the street side and you opened doors and times you do that, they look at you, i'm not helpless. it's not that you're helpless, i value you, i elevate you. >> dave: what do you think of what the governor said there. >> what is wrong with that, why is that a bad thing? that's something that's gotten lost with the notion of equality that men and women are exactly the same when they are not the same. there are huge differences between them and the whole idea of being protective of, you know, women and children in particular, going back to the "titanic," for example, who are the first people off
5:29am
the ship, the women and children. that's 'cause they were elev sort of superior in a way to men. so, there are two different ways of looking at the same issue of equality between the sexes and the one that i'm bringing forward is just, it only sounds shocking because people aren't used to hearing it. that's the issue, it's about looking, about flipping the switch and looking at this issue differently. >> alisyn: the book is "how to choose a husband and make peace with marriage" obviously very thought provoking and suzanne, thank you for being on. we could talk about this for hours. >> clayton: let us know what you feel. ff weekend on twitter. and we'll let you two debate that. >> clayton: elevate you. >> dave: when it comes to tipping how much should you be doling out and to whom? we've got the breakdown. >> alisyn: a not so warm welcome for a little girl at sea world. ouch!. >> clayton: oh. >> alisyn: what happens when a dolphin attacks.

>> all right. so, real entitlements like medicare to be on the chopping block. after spending more than 486 billion dollars in medicare last year. experts say it could be the next program to be bankrupt. is raising the eligibility age the answer? >> the doctor is a former president of the american medical association and author of the little red book of leadership lessons and he joins us live from new orleans, and perfectly placed just behind him. good to see you, doc? >> good seeing you, dave and alisyn, how are you doing? >> we're doing great, a lot of people, certainly republicans talking about raising eligibility age for medicare by at least around two years and you point out they're both positives and negatives to that approach? what are they? >> well, first of all, something has to be done. medicare has a broken engine. we can't continue just it put
5:47am
an oil in this leaking engine. we have 50 million people on medicare right now, and we're adding 10,000 people a day because of the baby boomers joining, and last year, we spent 549 billion dollars on medicare and so, if you look at two sources, one the congressional budget office and the second source, the medicare trustees and we can say that those are nonpartisan groups, they're saying that medicare will be bankrupt in 2024. >> okay. >> that's based on the assumption that what will happen is that we're going to do this price cutting. cutting physicians in january. 27% so if you rise the medicare age to 67, what you have to do is to give some notice so that you don't suddenly have a detrimental alliance program where people about to get on medicare suddenly find that they can't get on medicare. so, you've got to move that in
5:48am
gradually. but that would be a step in the right direction, certainly. and the other thing would be to put medicare into a defined contribution or a premium support model. which, by the way, i'm not speaking to the ama now, but ama is in favor of that and several former presidents of ama. and have long time advocated this. >> alisyn: you say that one thing that would really help is for people to take responsibility for their individual health care and make the right decisions. what does that look like? >> yes, absolutely. what we should do is get competition in the mix. there's really no competition now in medicare. if you tell everybody they can get an automobile, they're not going to pick a used yugo, they're going out and buy a nice car, an expensive car. what we need to do is make the individual patient, let the patient think about being fiscally responsible. what's a good way to do that? a health savings account would
5:49am
be available to many people with high deductible insurance over that and i'm afraid with the affordable care act that that option may be knocked out because they're not going to count the money that the individual puts in to the health savings account as part of the ratio when they look at expenses and payouts and so on. so, what we need to acknowledge that there's a problem that medicare's going bankrupt and we need to come up with a solution. raising the medicare age, converting medicare to defined contribution of premium support, having competition across state lines so that we don't get one insurance company with so much power out there, to control what they pay or what services they offer. let's have something like the federal employees health benefit program that the people in congress have. >> if only we had some elected officials who would discuss changes to entitlements and-- >> well, we've got to stop the rhetoric and the games playing and get down to serious business. >> got it.

impact on businesses. good morning to you, rick. >> good morning. >> dave: you had about 2000 workers striking, but there's about 500,000 fast food workers in the new york area, so this is a small fraction. where do you feel that these gripes are coming from? >> well, firstly, it's coming from the top. the unions today can't seem to win elections among employees and so, what they're doing is they're picketing and demonstratin demonstrating, seeking consumer boycotts to try and put pressure on the business owner to turn their employees over and basically give the unions, new union members after an election and what you're not seeing is the typical way that unions have organized in the past where the employees themselves want unions. you can get people to go out and demonstrate or pay hired demonstrators which is often the case in demonstrations, they hire homeless people to picket and they hire union
5:55am
organizers to make noise, but for the most part the employees are not interested in joining a union and that's why they're having to demonstrate and create noise rather than just create elections. >> clayton: the sciu president had this to say about this whole thing. fast food workers like workers at wal-mart and workers in airports are taking a brave step forward to call for a living wage so they can lift themselves out of poverty and contribute more to the economy and we all stand to gain when workers can drive the economy forward, but you're saying it's not really the workers. they're being basically told to go out and protest by higher ups, is that right? >> that's exactly right. the workers -- people don't join fast food companies to make big wages. these are transitional jobs. these are jobs for younger people. these are generally not people who are supporting families. these are jobs that everyone recognizes to employ the least skilled people in society who often times can't get jobs in other situations where the kids going to college, kids
5:56am
going to high school and looking for have money. the unions are looking for more dues paying members and they actually enjoy organizing places like this because there is natural high turnover and these people are generally not taking the full-time jobs and with high turnover every time the new person comes in, you get a new ininitiation fee. the unions dying and they need new places to find new members. >> dave: many fear in they get their demands the price of fast food dramatically increas increases. thanks for being with us. >> sure. >> clayton: and last resort, get a kidney or die, what did she do? she put up a billboard. her story at the top of the hour. >> dave: first he took christmas out of christmas tree and now the governor of rhode island wants to pull the plug on the entire christmas season, clayton. one lawmaker has a plan to

>> when president obama was re-elected it was the heist unemployment rate since franklin dell another roosevelt. high unemployment isn't the only reason it is like 1937. joining us now to explain why is amity slave she is the director of the bush institute for 4 percent growth project author of the fourth coming book on coolidge. i can't wait to read that. 1937 looking a lot like 2013. how so? you broke it down by 4 different points. number one you say preelection spending that sets records. explain why this is one of the major problems? >> you call 1936 was an election year like this year. they spent a lot. they spent a record amount. 1936 interestingly was the first year in peace time that the federal government was bigger than the states.
6:15am
america the states and towns used to be the big government and the federal government was a pygmy. that changed in 36. roosevelt campaigning made that great. this past year we spent a record share of the economy as well. that's the first one. >> number two off the list is the cold water afterward after the election? >> it is appropriate. it's the hang over. after the election after roosevelt won and he won historically 46 out of 46 states. i better savement we spent too much in the leblgs year. so there's a shivering of austerity in 37 as there is now fiscal cliff. >> right after the election oh my gosh we better save now. we forgot to save this time. >> number 3 fear some attack on the status quo. >> that's what i have been focusing on in my work. franklin roosevelt the second
6:16am
term was very tough. he said in the first term folks you met your match. now you rich people you have met your master. image a politician say that go today. president obama doesn't say that but it is striking how he has been. he wouldn't allow taxes to go up. wouldn't keep taxes where they are on the rich, scrooge. he wouldn't do that. so he made it clear that the tax increases for the rich the point of his campaign they are the most important thing he brings them up get the rich. that is similar to roosevelt. >> fallout from the first term legislation. we saw that obviously in 1936 in 1937 because of what new deal politics and new deal policies now talking obama care? >> these are clear analogies. it's the binge hangover thing. first you have a great piece of legislation that sounds great before the election. obama care.
6:17am
then it was the wagner act for labor social security was the new thing. after the election the changes. only due in 1937 all of a sudden that money was gone from the economy that was one of the reasons why we are talking now. they had a depression within the depression. stock market went down. >> let's be specific here. before the break we said we could see another bubble. before we saw the housing bubble a few years ago. we know what that is. is the bubble the amount of money that will be taken out of the economy because of obama care? >> in 37 actions 38 thu had-- 3 37 they had a bubble. the year after the election it popped. we are doing our bubble right now. coming up a pop that would mean further unemployment. they had a downturn, this is the bubbly period. that's what the fed was doing when it put money into the
6:18am
economy prior to the election. they had a benefit for the election. interest rates are so low many people would say we are in a bubble. sounds strange because we don't feel so bubbly. outside of the u.s. they would say we are too easy sloshing with money or the bubble is inflated, pop. >> stock market uneasy as we await this fiscal cliff. >> check out the new book coolidge when it hits stores. >> coming up look at this shocking statistic. autism effects 1 out of 88 children. there's no cure for it. we don't really know what's causing it, do we? we want to know what is being done to fight it. washington needs to find the answers on this. he will be here next. a shocking tragedy in the nfl a kansas city chief linebacker kills his girlfriend and himself right in front of the coaches at arrowhead stadium. we have a live report straight ahead.
6:19am
look, if you have copd like me,
6:20am
you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd spiriva helps me breathe better.
6:21am
(blowing sou) ask your doctor about spiriva.

>> it's a shocking statistic. one out of every 88 u.s. children will develop autism. the number sky rocketing from 30 years ago when the disorder impacted one in every 10,000 children. the startling statistics are prompting some lawmakers to demand answers. our next guest questioned the certainties of disease control about the federal response. congressman burton joins us now. >> how are you? >> doing well. i don't have to tell you how the autism rates have sky rocketed. they are one in 88 as we said. it sounded like you and your fellow lawmakers do not just believe there's better detection as some doctors suggested.
6:23am
do you feel the cdc.gov came and provided you with any answers? >> no, they haven't. i have had chairman of government reform and oversight for six years. we had hearings on the autism epidemic for four years. we had scientists from all over the world come in and testify. one of the causes we believe and i am confident we are accurate is the mercury being injected into children and adults through our vaccinations. there's a product which contains mercury it's used as a preservative. it has never been tested. children have been getting so many shots before they go to school many kids are becoming autistic very rapidly after getting theseshots. >> i want to interject here. doctors have poo pooed this notion for a long time. mer tour rehas been taken out. the little bit they say it is
6:24am
safe. that controversial topic whether there's a link comes up several times. let me tell you what carolyn maloney said to the cdc.gov. >> i had 50 million parents write to me or come to me said i had a healthy child then they had 10, 9, six vaccinations at one time and that child changed overnight and was knocking their head on the wall and it was a changed child. >> did the cdc.gov respond to that? >> there was no concrete evidence to prove that. if there's any question at all about whether mer tour recauses a problem like this for kikids adults you ought to get it out of the vaccinations. if you are a woman who is pregnant they tell you not to eat fish with mercury tell you not to handle mercury in any
6:25am
way, shape or form. my grandson got 9 shots all in one day and he got shots with mercury and he changed a very shortly after. the vaccinations is a contributing factor. i am not against vaccinations i am saying we need to get mer tour reout of the vaccinations. >> makes doctors nervous because the flip side of what that can cause in terms of epidemics of diseases is a problem. you have personal experience of this. what do you want the federal government to do about these rising autism rates now? >> i think the cdc.gov and fda health and human services should get mer tour reout of anything injected or put into the human body. it is toxic. it is one of the most toxic materials in the world. we could go to single shot vials for vaccinations for adults and children that would not require
6:26am
any preservative like this. if we do that we could stem the tied on these radical increases in people who have autism. >> congressman we really appreciate you coming in on this sunday to tell you what your take is. we will continue on with the story. >> he gave a homeless man a pair of boots and socks on a freezing night now this officer's single act of kindness there are new developments in the story we will bring you up to date. 11 months out of the year their mission is to serve and protect our freedom. on the 12th month their mission is to collect and distribute millions of toys to children across the country. next we will find out about the u.s. marines toys for tots program. ay, now here's our holiday gift list. aww, not the mall. well, i'll do the shopping... if you do the shipping. shipping's a hassle.

jeffery hill man 54 years old he has been way ward for quite sometime decades in fact. his family who the post got in touch with says he would call about once a year check in so they knew he was alive but they didn't know how he was doing. >> further his brother identified him picked up the new york post sees the picture of the homeless man and realizes that's his brother. that's my brother. now my door is open to him. we haven't really talked he has gone through difficult times with alcohol. maybe there would be some sort of reunion where he gets off the streets. may have more of a positive ending than what we saw with the story. >> headlines, equipped is in court suspending all work as hundreds of egyptian protests for and against their president

6:43am
is bigger than we think ... sometimelike the flu.fer fromu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently
6:44am
than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. the flu comes on fast, so ask your doctor about tamiflu. prescription for flu. >> nativity displays being nicked being called holiday
6:45am
trees instead. >> i am going to guess father john religion contributor has thoughts on this. >> am i angry, am i upset? >> i am not feeling angry from you. >> the reason i am not angry is? th that yes, i think it's silly. it's out of place for people to dedicate so much energy to try to get rid of christmas scenes like this. the good news is when christianity has been persecuted, when it has been outlawed, when people have died for their faith, it hasn't gone away. everybody has an opportunity to make sure their faith does not go away in this christmas season. to live that faith as a family, as a community. what should we do about these i think very small percentage of people who are working to try to get rid of these public expressions of faith? i think we should speak up. that's why i am doing it. that's why i think it's important we have these stories to show what they are trying to
6:46am
do without losing the peace. if our christmas is going to be all about getting a upset at people trying to take away christmas that's silly too. >>s are mu rasmussen did a poll how people say happy holidays. seasons greetings 68 percent of people say merry christmas as opposed to 23 percent who say happy holidays. >> i am so happy when someone says to me, happy hanukkah. i love that. i love when someone says happy hanukkah. somebody is celebrating their faith. passing that on to me. i would respond, happy hanukkah to you as well. as a christian in my case i am a christian. if i have to make a decision do i have to say happy holidays or merry christmas. i am happy to let people know i am celebrating christmas. that is america. we don't have to hide our differences. >> it's a celebration of your faith it's a celebration of
6:47am
christmas. why would someone have to take offense to the way which you introduce the holidays. >> i think it's a good question. it would be an offense if we were saying as a country as a government in our courts the only public expression of religion should be christianity because most americans are christian. that is not the american way. but the american way is not let's pretend that we are all the same and because we are so sensitive we want to make sure that nobody has a public expression. there are people who would like faith and freedom of religion could be instead the freedom of worship. that is you can only have an expression of your faith, your religion inside the walls of church. that has not been the american tradition the american way and we individually should step up and say i am going to live my faith in a joyful happy way. >> what about that when it comes outside of your house and it's in the public square the town hall at the governor's mansion
6:48am
and christmas tree, is that a problem? >> not at all. the courts have repeatedly said as long as you are open also to symbols of other religions that is an appropriate thing to do. a small town in the united states that is 90 percent muslim they should have a right in their courthouse to have an expression of their islamic faith. absolutely for sure. the courts said as long as we have free exercise of religion the other clause must be protected that means allowing people to have public expressions of their belief. >> we needed you to shed light on that four-hours ago. >> you guys looked so angry about the war on christmas. >> there's no anger here. happy honda. -- hanukkah. >> happy hanukkah to you.
6:49am
>> thank you, father. >> from that to this. it is legal to smoke marijuana recreationally. still against federal law. should the feds step in? steven crowder says they better before we go up in smoke and become a nation of pot heads. >> yeah, father john.
6:50am
6:51am
6:52am
yeah, there is a lot of pot next to me.
6:53am
[ laughter ] out next guest is worried it could get worse though states like colorado and washington legalized small amount of recreational pot but it's against federal law. are we sending the wrong message when it comes to legalizing marijuana? our next guest wants to clear the air. starting to get smoky in here. steven crowder is live, fox news contributor, with an interesting take on this. are you worried that states made the move but the federal got hasn't? or vice versa. >> first, first off, i appreciate all the puns. you took in every single one under the sun you could. here is the thing. i understand the constitutional argument it should be a state issue. of course, that is not the case right now, and until we work out the situation with roadside testing for marijuana, that requires constitution, it's a federal issue. i understand the argument. it vote not to have it in my state. that being said, i have a problem with legalizing marijuana based on a premise that is a lie. based on a premise it's
6:54am
harmless. we have went out and interviewed people should marijuana be legalized legalized? they said yes. why? it's harmless. legalizing marijuana does not end the war on drug, does not clear up the prisons and not a harmless substances. if you legalize it, more people do it. if you're okay with that an say it's a state issue, fine. but don't lie to me. >> we had michelle malkin, fox news contributor, from colorado, supports the idea -- she says she is a libertarian on this issue that the government shouldn't involved in this. if you want to smoke pot in confine of your own home, that is fine. if you get in prison issue and this is an interesting point, california argues it soaks up the prison and uses police resources we can't afford to use. some cities said in california you know what? we are not even going to stop them or arrest them anymore if they have pot in their possession, going against the federal law. >> sure, i understand that. i was raised in montreal that
6:55am
it's less than a parking ticket so everybody did it. here is the problem with that. they use this number. 25% of prisoners are nonviolent drug offenders. listen, al capone was a nonviolent offender. most head of mafia rings are nonviolent offenders. a lot of people running underage sex slaves are nonviolent offenders. look at the people in state prison for crimes solely involving marijuana, 1.4%. marijuana possession is 0.1%. listen, if you want to say legalize drugs, and it will end the war, okay, let's talk about that. but let's not act as though they are rating and putting every jeff picoli in jail. that is not true. but in places like california or colorado where perception of marijuana being harmless increases to a "t." i put that in the video that people can see online. usage among teenagers increases. even though no one is saying hey, kids, go ahead and light up. what happens if it's
6:56am
legalized, it's legalized under the premise it's harmless so teenagers say that as a license to smoke up. if i said anything that offends anybody -- go ahead. >> aren't you making a progressive arguement that the government needs to step in because the parents aren't well enough to educate their children that they shouldn't be smoking pot. we need government to say you can't smoke pot because it's bad for you? >> i'm not saying the government should step in. we should educate people. if they're pro-legalization, this is about education. if you have a problem, i'm easy to find. tweet me on twitter. >> smoke them if you've got them. stein, thank you to see you as always. we vehicle more fox and friend -- we'll have more "fox .
